Why We Give

At Unity In Marin, giving is a joyful spiritual practice.  When we give, we intentionally choose to live into the understanding that true abundance is everywhere, and always available to us.  Giving generously allows us to prioritize the value of our spiritual journey and opens us to a joyful and abundant life.  When we give generously and with an open heart, we bless not only ourselves, we also bless our community and the world.

The spirit of generosity feeds the part of our soul that longs to be connected and feel supported. Generosity creates bonds that weave together the fabric of a community that transcends self-interest. It is in these bonds that we enjoy deeper connections and a greater sense of certainty. As we cherish our community, as we share our gifts generously, we consciously cultivate a community in which everyone thrives.
